So i'm a newbie in PW and make my first steps into deep.

so i've tried to translate this great addon to german....so far so good.
 
But the Top Menu Bar in Backend ( Dashboard Posts Categories Tags Authors Settings )

seems to cant get translated...so my question:

did i not get it or are there some strings hard coded in this module?

EDIT: worked the first one out....PW is so easy to learn great stuff... ;)

done a pull request: https://github.com/kongondo/Blog/pulls

Great Admintool

Featurerequests could be like described above:

- publish from/until feature (so you've get a eventcal option with dashboard, too without much effort or have a second addon)

- in Dashboard -> Overview could the Archive view linked to a row below with lists the posts in the clicked month?

- a blog addon that i used in another CMS has widget for "older + newer" topics - it's like "recent posts" but little different (maybe i find the time to contribute this by my self if i was more familiar with PW)

- what's about META tags like description and keywords?

i've seen some "automatic" functions for create them but let them overwrite from the author...

function makemetadescription ($thestring) {

$the_description = stripslashes($thestring);
$the_description = str_replace('"', ' ', $the_description);
$the_description = str_replace("'", ' ', $the_description);
$the_description = str_replace('\'', ' ', $the_description);
if (strlen($the_description) > 160) {
if(preg_match('/.{0,160}(?:[.!?:,])/su', $the_description, $match)) { $the_description = $match[0]; } //thanks to thorn

if (strlen($the_description) > 160) {
$pos = strpos($the_description, " ", 120);
if ($pos > 0) {$the_description = substr($the_description, 0, $pos); }	
}
}
//$the_description = ' '.$the_description;
$the_description = trim(str_replace(' ',' ',$the_description));

return (' '.$the_description);
}

function makemetakeywords ($thestring ) {

$the_keywords = $thestring;
if (strlen($the_keywords) > 100) {
if(preg_match('/.{0,100}(?:[.!?:,])/su', $the_keywords, $match)) { $the_keywords = $match[0]; } //thanks to thorn
if (strlen($the_keywords) > 100) {
$pos = strpos($the_keywords, " ", 100);
if ($pos > 0) {$the_keywords = substr($the_keywords, 0, $pos); }	
}
}	
$bad = array(
'\'', /* / */ '"', /* " */	'<', /* < */	'>', /* > */
'{', /* { */	'}', /* } */	'[', /* [ */	']', /* ] */	'`', /* ` */
'!', /* ! */	'@', /* @ */	'#', /* # */	'$', /* $ */	'%', /* % */
'^', /* ^ */	'&', /* & */	'*', /* * */	'(', /* ( */	')', /* ) */
'=', /* = */	'+', /* + */	'|', /* | */	'/', /* / */	'\\', /* \ */
';', /* ; */	':', /* : */	' ', /* */	'.', /* . */	'?' /* ? */
);
$the_keywords = str_replace($bad, ',', $the_keywords);
$the_keywords = str_replace(',,,',',',$the_keywords);
$the_keywords = str_replace(',,',',',$the_keywords);

return (' '.$the_keywords);
}

Some more Tweaking....

- tags are burned words in SEO maybe buzzwords or something is better use actually?

- tag pages should be noindex,follow per default? (Since newbee where is the best PW practise to setup such things)

Kongondo,

Regarding blog_date field. I get the feeling it is designed to be the date/time that the blog post is published, but from what I can see it gets set when the post is first created and doesn't automatically change after that. I might be misunderstanding your use of the field, but I would like to see it change automatically when the post is published and not change after that - maybe even disable user editing of it?

I know we often draft up several posts at a time and publish them later. I don't think we should have to manually adjust this field when publishing the post.

Another thought for you - have you considered integrating this module:

http://modules.processwire.com/modules/schedule-pages/

or the functionality from it into the blog posts tab? This would make WP users feel at home. Thanks for considering.

blog_date field

You are right. It should be about the post publish date. I don't think this will be difficult to implement - I'll just steal and modify the code here by SiNNuT and Soma :D. I'd still like to leave a manual override (i.e. not disable user editing of it); I envisage cases where a post is published 'by mistake' and has to be recalled for later publication. 

Scheduled Pages

I'll have a think about this one. I can see the potential.

Thanks for your ideas!

Currently it looks like the excerpt length is hardcoded to 450 characters - perhaps adding an option for people to set this themselves would be a good idea? In the meantime, for anyone that wants to change this, find the line

Thanks for filing this in GitHub. I currently have this working on my local install. Added a 'blog_excerpt' integer field to the 'blog' template. Will also enable editing via the 'Settings' tab in ProcessBlog. Due to the nature of this module, for existing installs (i.e. if you've already installed ProcessBlog) you will have to manually create the field; The module will not attempt to modify existing fields; the risk of corrupting/loosing your data means it's not worth it :-). I'll post a notice here once I have updated the module, thanks.

fenton,

Good question. It's something I've been discussing with some people. Currently, the only way to achieve this is to clone the module and modify it (typically paths and selectors) to read your news section pages (i.e. the fields). Obviously, that is not ideal or for everyone. However, Blog is meant for, er blogging. So, another solution is needed. The current idea is to create a separate (but similar) skeleton module that is highly configurable and adaptable to different needs such a news site, etc. At the moment, this is still an idea. There is no ETA yet :-)

Cheers.

mr-fan

First, welcome to PW and the forums! Happy to hear Blog is of some use to you. Thank you for your suggestions

Translatable Strings

Apologies for my oversight! Thanks for the pull request. I'll have a look and update.

Publish from/until feature

See my response to @Adrian above. I'll have to think a bit more about this although it is a good idea I think. I just have to think about how to best implement it.

Archive - linked to row below with list of month's posts

Not sure about this one. The Posts tab already shows the lists of posts sorted by date

Meta tags, etc.

Not sure I follow what you mean?

Tags vs buzzwords

I don't think buzzwords will work :-)

noindex, nofollow

The best way to find stuff on these forums/PW site is to search using Google. E.g. noindex nofollow site:processwire.com

See this example: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/3928-meta-robots-on-individual-pages/?p=38483

Thanks!

Apologies. version 1.0.0 of module was installed at /site/templates/Blog/ ...that should be /site/templates/ProcessBlog/ If updating the module within the PW Admin, this will write to this latter path... You will need to manually remove the former folder :-)

Thanks for the Link for the robots - it's a thing that i missed until now - and it seems to implement easy like most everything in PW ;)

i will work further - thanks for this great addon.

PW is almost very peferct to my need or rather beeing so flexible to fit it.

Best Regards mr-fan

Seriously? If yes, out of the box, no. But with some trickery, you can have MarkupBlog output posts from only a particular author, assuming each author has their own blog. I am just thinking out loud here. If this is a feature request, I'd like to have more details but also hear what others think :-)

Glad you like the module. :D

Seriously?

Yes, seriously  :( unfortunately I am working on just such a site right now. It's for a business that has 10 separate locations (pseudo-franchises, which are more or less independent) and they will all need to have their own separate blogs with their own URLs and their own tags, categories and archives. 

So far I've used a method where all the blogs have different templates in PW which all point to the same template file (which is based on Ryan's blog profile) but I've made the template file dynamic so the names of all the fields are built at run-time based on a naming convention. For example: tags-location1-name, tags-location2-name... etc. instead of just having 1 tags field. And all those suffixes are stored in a special hidden field in the root page of each location.

Don't mean to derail this thread, just wanted to point out a situation where more than 1 individual blog is needed and how much work it can take to set up something like that. 

Again, big thanks for your work, it's going to save me a lot of time on many projects!

Update: Blog version 1.1

Read below before updating.

For new installs, proceed as normal

-------------------------------------

Changelog

1. Added new widget 'Post Author' - @adrian idea, thanks.

- This widget allows you to add a post's author's biography with each post. You can add it before or after a post (or wherever you wish). See example in updated 'blog-post.php'

example: 

$blog = $modules->get('MarkupBlog');
echo $blog->postAuthor();

- The widget can be enabled/disabled in the 'Settings' Tab of ProcessBlog. It is enabled by default

- Updated the CSS to style the widget

Screen

post-894-0-20359800-1401445817_thumb.png

2. Made 'posts truncate length' configurable - @looeee idea, thanks.

- This is for when you want to render a 'post summary' - e.g. as seen on /blog/posts/.

- Was previously hard-coded to 450. Default is now 450 where no value is specified

- Can be configured either on the page /blog/posts/ or 'Settings' Tab of ProcessBlog

UPGRADING

As I have said previously and repeat here (just in case you missed it :D) a module of this kind must not be altering your data if you've already installed it or where there are potential conflicts. 

Therefore, to upgrade, some manual input is required. Once we hit a lock-down on new features, then this requirement will fizzle out...

A. Author Widget

1. This comes with a new template without a template file. 

- Create a template called 'blog-widget-basic'

- Give it a tag 'blog' and a label 'Blog Widget: Basic' //just for consistency with other blog templates

- Add the field 'blog_summary' save. Then within the template (i.e. click on the upward arrow of the field), change the description to 'Widget Description' in the modal that opens up. Save...

- Still on the edit template view, under the 'Family' tab, specify 'No' under 'May pages using this template have children?' and 'Yes' to 'Can this template be used for new pages?' Save...

- Copy over the updated blog.css to /site/templates/css/ (this assumes you haven't made any custom changes to this file!!!)

2. Post Author page

- Under /blog/widgets/ create a new page called 'Post Author' and assign it the the above template ('blog-widget-basic')

- In the 'Widget Description' field enter a description, e.g. 'Renders Post's author biography.' Save...

The Author Widget should then automatically appear under 'Settings' in the Widgets section in ProcessBlog

B. Post Excerpt Length

1. Add Field to Template

- In the template 'blog-posts', add the field 'blog_quantity'. Save. Change the field's description to 'Posts truncate length'. Save

C. Update Blog to version 1.1

In PW, now update the module to version 1.1. This will copy over the new module files (ProcessBlog.module and MarkupBlog.module) and their related files.

Note: installer will not run again! So, don't worry :D

All done; now go write a post about how cool ProcessWire is  :P  O0

Hey kongondo - great improvements.

I have another suggestion for a widget for you :)

On the main posts page, I like having a thumbnail of the first image to the left of the summary text. Of course you could use the first image from the images field, but I think it would be more appropriate to use the first image embedded in the post - domdocument or even a regex does the trick nicely. You could maybe even have a "feature image" field which could be used for this purpose, or perhaps enable tags on the images field and have people enter "feature_thumb" or something like that in the tag field for the image they want to use as the thumbnail - this might be the simplest and most flexible approach and will also require no duplication of images.

Comments on/off?

Been thinking about a new feature. Ability to turn on/off comments both on a per post basis and on a Blog-wide basis. So, if a post has comments turned off, the user gets the usual 'Comments not allowed for this post' or something similar. Additionally, maybe also a feature to turn-off submitting of new comments on a post when approved comments hit a certain number, say '100'. What do you guys think?

Need to think a bit more about how best to implement this... :-)

On another note, I like being able to only display the Recent Posts when viewing a single post. I don't see much value in having it on the blog home page because the recent posts are there already.

As for comments - all those options sound great!

Blogwide there is only one option -> ignore blogpagesettings and overwrite this settings but not change it...if one switch back to comments=on the blogpagesettings are already there? Don't know this is to do in the PWWay...

Exactly. so, the logic, in order of ascending precedence (i.e. 3 > 1, etc.) could probably go like this:

1. Comments are ON by default.

2. On each 'post' page (/blog/posts/my-post/), will include a checkbox: 'check to disable comments for this post'. This will ignore #1

3. On some settings page or on the 'posts' page (/blog/posts/) have a checkbox or similar that says: 'disable comments on all posts'. Ignore #1 & #2

So, #3 is 'greatest' and will ignore #1 and #2 but will NOT change their settings; checked boxes (#2) will remain checked and unchecked ones (#1) will remain unchecked but their 'directions' will be superseded by #3 .

#################################  EDIT #################################

Oops warped thinking on precedence above!!! It should be the other way round! See edits below..

So, the logic, in order of ascending precedence (i.e. 3 > 1, etc.) could probably go like this:

1. Comments are enabled by default everywhere.

2. On the 'comments' page (/blog/comments/) have a select that says: 'disable comments on all posts/disable new comments on all posts'. Ignore #1 but respect individual post's settings (#3)

3. On each 'post' page (/blog/posts/my-post/), will include a select: 'disable comments on this post/disable new comments on this post/always enable comments on this post'. This will ignore #1 & 2. This is like a get() in ProcessWire: it is explicit and ignores 'hidden' status.  

So, #3 (individual post setting) is 'greatest' and will ignore #1 and #2.

#################################  END EDIT #################################

Btw, you will notice very soon that there's very little 'do this the PW way' - in many cases, there is no PW way :D The system is so versatile yet powerful you will be amazed... :-)

Fantastic work, kongondo. Your module is much needed for those of us who don't want to spend a lot of time stripping out the markup on Ryan's (equally awesome) blog module.

One question: I notice that blog posts have this url: www.domain/blog/posts/my-post-here

Have you considered any approach which might remove "/posts/" from that URL? My existing blog doesn't have the extra segment and I'd love to keep it that way, if possible.

I've also been thinking I could remove it via htaccess.

Hi FuturShoc. Glad you like the module.

I thought about this a lot, even with the /site/blog/.... URL, where others would prefer /site/my-awesome-post/...but decided to leave it to the user (for now at least...), if they so wish, to manipulate the URL segments... :-)

UPDATE:

Feature now available in Blog version 2

      Repeater Images
      Adds options to modify Repeater fields to make them convenient for "page-per-image" usage. Using a page-per-image approach allows for additional fields to be associated with each image, to record things such as photographer, date, license, links, etc.
      When Repeater Images is enabled for a Repeater field the module changes the appearance of the Repeater inputfield to be similar (but not identical) to an Images field. The collapsed view shows a thumbnail for each Repeater item, and items can be expanded for field editing.
      Screencast

      Installation
      Install the Repeater Images module.
      Setup
      Create an image field to use in the Repeater field. Recommended settings for the image field are "Maximum files allowed" set to 1 and "Formatted value" set to "Single item (null if empty)". Create a Repeater field. Add the image field to the Repeater. If you want additional fields in the Repeater create and add these also. Repeater Images configuration
      Tick the "Activate Repeater Images for this Repeater field" checkbox. In the "Image field within Repeater" dropdown select the single image field. You must save the Repeater field settings to see any newly added Image fields in the dropdown. Adjust the image thumbnail height if you want (unlike the core Images field there is no slider to change thumbnail height within Page Edit). Note: the depth option for Repeater fields is not compatible with the Repeater Images module.
      Image uploads feature
      There is a checkbox to activate image uploads. This feature allows users to quickly and easily add images to the Repeater Images field by uploading them to an adjacent "upload" field.
      To use this feature you must add the image field selected in the Repeater Images config to the template of the page containing the Repeater Images field - immediately above or below the Repeater Images field would be a good position.
      It's recommended to set the label for this field in template context to "Upload images" or similar, and set the visibility of the field to "Closed" so that it takes up less room when it's not being used. Note that when you drag images to a closed Images field it will automatically open. You don't need to worry about the "Maximum files allowed" setting because the Repeater Images module overrides this for the upload field.
      New Repeater items will be created from the images uploaded to the upload field when the page is saved. The user can add descriptions and tags to the images while they are still in the upload field and these will be retained in the Repeater items. Images are automatically deleted from the upload field when the page is saved.
      Tips
      The "Use accordion mode?" option in the Repeater field settings is useful for keeping the inputfield compact, with only one image item open for editing at a time. The "Repeater item labels" setting determines what is shown in the thumbnail overlay on hover. Example for an image field named "image": {image.basename} ({image.width}x{image.height})

      Hello There Guys.

      I am in the process of getting into making my first modules for PW and i had a question for you PHP and PW gurus in here.

      I was wondering how i could use an external library, lets say TwitterOAuth in my PW module.
      Link to library
      https://twitteroauth.com/

      Would the code below be correct or how would i go about this:
      <?PHP namespace ProcessWire; /* load the TwitterOAuth library from my Module folder */ require "twitteroauth/autoload.php"; use Abraham\TwitterOAuth\TwitterOAuth; class EyeTwitter extends WireData,TwitterOAuth implements Module { /* vars */ protected $twConnection; /* extend parent TwitterOAuth contructor $connection = new TwitterOAuth(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET, $access_token, $access_token_secret); */ public function myTwitterConnection ($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret) { /* save the connection for use later */ $this->twConnection = TwitterOAuth::__construct($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret); } } ?> Am i on the right trail here or i am barking up the wrong tree?
      I don´t need a complete solution, i just wonder if i am including the external library the right way.
      If not, then give me a few hint´s and i will figure it out.

      Thanks a bunch.

      Here I'm introducing FlipFall Magazine, our multi-topic blog. It used to run on Wordpress but we recently switched it to ProcessWire. This was done the usual way we do it when converting our sites: install ProcessWire in a subfolder of the original Wordpress site under a hard-to-guess name, set up the new site there, then move content over manually, inspecting and updating each article as needed. After the ProcessWire site was ready, when we un-installed the Wordpress one and moved the ProcessWire site up one level to the document root, and... done.
      We used the W3CSS framework because it handles the responsive breakpoints so well (no extra work for us 😉), and it tends to default to a clean modern look.
      We wanted full control over the back end of the site and do customized things without having to hire a developer.  As FlipFall has grown, the ability to have in-house back-end control has become even more important.
      Case example: Ad partners - we now can quite easily, if we wish, place different ads on different topics on this blog at a moment's notice - no need to hire a developer. Changes like this can be implemented in-house right away. The fact that we can easily incorporate this sort of thing is really nice when we're talking with potential ad partners.
      Helpful features of ProcessWire during this experience:
      The ability to export and import fields in PW was key here. We had a few other article-style sites I had done in PW recently, so having the same types of templates was very helpful. We were able to export fields and templates from our existing sites and import into FlipFall as a starting base point. No need to re-invent the wheel here! Another helpful ability of PW was when we were dealing with the categories. We built the site without category templates (but with the category page field), then added the templates in later as needed - no disruption. In other words, a template-less page field worked perfectly for the categories until we needed the template, then we just created the template. Not every feature of the site needs to be thought out in absolute full beforehand, some can be added in later as needed. Very extensible and convenient. Internal links within blog posts worked well using the page select option in the link button on the editor. When moving out of staging folder and into document root, the links auto-updated, which was nice. Creating new articles is a breeze, because under PW our fields are now customized for our needs: we created all of the fields we need and none of the ones we don't. Again, this is unlike most blogging CMS's, where they try to guess what you want (and usually get it wrong). Even for people who are solely doing blogs/article sites, I feel that ProcessWire is a much better option than most blog-specific platforms, because of PW's flexibility.  The only thing I miss about Wordpress is the ability to auto-schedule post publication, which for the serious blogger is important. For example, there were some occasions on some of our other blogs where we needed to schedule posts to auto-publish at 3:01am Eastern Time to allow a time-sensitive post to come out as early in time of day as possible on publication date (3:01 am US Eastern time ensures it's that same day 12:01 am on Pacific time). We were delighted to see that ProcessWire is much, much lighter on resources of the hosting environment than the same site on Wordpress - we could see this empirically on our web hosting stats before and after the switch.

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "http://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
       
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/
      GitHub: https://github.com/kongondo/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
      As of 11 May 2019 ProcessWire versions earlier than 3.x are not supported
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
       
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
       
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
       
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
       
      Warning/Consideration
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
       
      Backend
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
       
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
       
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
       
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
